Toyota Employee Night
May 29, 2009 - Fast Fridays
By: Gary Roberts
Another great night of racing at Fast Fridays. A full first division program included “one night only” Bobby Hedden, returning riders, John Houston and Mike Faria and Southern California rider Tyson Burmeister.
Kenny Ingalls lined up for the scratch main inside Billy Janniro, then Bart Bast and Mike Faria on the outside. Ingalls and Janniro collided going into the first corner, both going wide and managing to stay aboard their machines. Bast got what he later admitted was his worst gate this season, so was not involved, but by the time Ingalls had straightened up, Bast had taken a good lead. Faria, in fourth place pulled in after a lap. It took Janniro a couple of laps to get past Ingalls, by which time Bast’s lead was safe enough to secure him the race.
The handicap main was won by zero yard rider Bryce Starks, who rode fast and flawlessly. Behind him Bobby Hedden waited for the mistake which didn’t happen.
The second division main was a demolition derby with first 4 riders crashing on the final lap in 2 separate incidents. Sean Billenstein and Danny Faria were both able to walk away from it, but were unable to make the restart.
The third division main was won by Casey Cornilsen, who had never ridden a motorcycle, any kind of motorcycle, until a month ago.
